I liked that this story took place in Wales Otherwise, I didn t find anything special about the book. Second book in a new series that I am liking overall, although it runs a bit towards the macabre and therefore pushes the boundaries of realism a bit I m not quite sure what I mean by that, but I think I personally enjoy a story that revolves aroundbanal crimes, whereas this series seems intent on proving that a backwards area of Pig Wales can serve as the setting for increasingly interesting and elaborate schemes Regardless, the characters are well written, the pacing is near perfect, Second book in a new series that I am liking overall, although it runs a bit towards the macabre and

proving that a backwards area of Pig Wales can serve as the setting for increasingly interesting and elaborate schemes Regardless, the characters are well written, the pacing is near perfect, the narrator appropriately self deprecating though inclined a little too much to statements of regretful and regrettable foreshadowing of the if only I d known what was coming next variety , and the setting just unfamiliar enough to be considered alien and exotic I have visited Wales My memory of it is being in a major hotel chain and not being able to drink the water from the taps as it wasn t safe This series is similar to Stephen Booth s with its wild rural setting, but in contrast to the local policeman making friends with the outsider policewoman from the big city, here Glyn Capaldi, the big city policeman with the Italian name, has no local allies and very few friends an outsider in every sense of the word which puts a different dynamic on his crime solving In these books being local is a liability that puts blinders on one s imagination and therefore one s investigative ability Glyn regularly finds his way around obstacles others can t see or won t acknowledge and pokes his nose where the locals won t go It can be wearying to read at times, when he is constantly trying to outwit his fellow investigators as well as local criminals, but it is never boring, and that, to me, is one of the highest recommendations I can give From my book blog www.JetBlackDragonfly.blogspot.comDead People is the second Glyn Capaldi mystery from Ewart Hutton Set in the barren Welsh

www.JetBlackDragonfly.blogspot.comDead People is the second Glyn Capaldi mystery from Ewart Hutton Set in the barren Welsh countryside, Capaldi is, this time, invited to help with a strange case As in Good People, the mystery begins right away and continues without letup.A body has been found at the Cwm Cesty Nant wind farm construction site Identification is difficult without a head or hands, but it is recent Nearby, an archeological dig has discovered a mummified Scot and both sites are being investigated Capaldi is certain there is a local connection, but the force contends they were killed elsewhere and dumped Two other bodies are soon uncovered and attention is directed to the local crazy man and his cabin in the woods.Yes, directed but by whom and why From the local youth rehabilitation farm to the upscale Barn Gallery owners, Capaldi keeps digging until the story of these historical and recent murders comes to light.This series entry was slightly lighter, but just as complex That s quite a shock for Dinas someone comments forgetting what the case in Good People revealed about the town of Dinas so dark and nasty, yet surprisingly water under the bridge Glyn has the chance at an affair, and his good friend Mac comes on the scene That makes four people total that like Capaldi, everyone else barely tolerates him The tension is continuous, and again, ripping off the veneer of local respectability reveals several nests of vipers.These are solid detection novels starring a unique and to the reader likeable maverick The next in the series is Wild People, and I won t hesitate Solid Detective Sergeant Glyn Capaldi has been exiled to rural Wales, where his top case seems to be finding a man who is castrating sheep While brooding on his banishment, he is surprised when a body is found buried in the hillside near a newly constructed wind farm In short order, twobodies are found in the same hill and all are missing their heads and hands, making identification impossible Unhappily for Capaldi, a former colleague who is now the boss arrives to take control and credit Detective Sergeant Glyn Capaldi has been exiled to rural Wales, where his top case seems to be finding a man who is castrating sheep While brooding on his banishment, he is surprised when a body is found buried in the hillside near a newly constructed wind farm In short order, twobodies are found in the same hill and all are missing their heads and hands, making identification impossible Unhappily for Capaldi, a former colleague who is now the boss arrives to take control and credit when yet another body is found nearby, this time a younger andrecently interred body.As clues are gathered, all signs suggest a local eccentric, and Capaldi s nemesis moves the investigation to another city where connections seem to lead Capaldi is left in charge of clearing up some local questions, which suits him just fine since he believes the distant trail is one set to derail the police while the real story is local Much happens as he makes inquires a female archaeologist has Glyn in a romantic tizzy and two married couples running an upscale antiques barn throw a number of wrenches into the works Glyn Capaldi is an interestingly developed character, strong enough to make choices that anger his bosses while at the same time evidencing a lack of confidence with women As he deals with his past disgrace and his new subordinate role to a power hungry previous colleague, he has both internal and external struggles about how to portray his situation Hutton does a terrific job of letting the reader meet Capaldi with all his flaws and inconsistencies intact Capaldi is not the only fully realized character even the relatively minor characters are nuanced And while I ve never been to Wales, I felt as though I had been after reading this book The descriptive language reminded me of Ann Cleeve s Shetland series, though the location seems less cold andwet It s a beautiful thing when an author can transport the reader to a new location, and Hutton did an exceptionally fine job of that.Throughout the book, Capaldi takes his investigation in a direction very different from that of the police establishment Until the end, I was never quite sure whether he was on the right track or if he was seeing misdirection where there was none This kept me on my toes and had me constantly questioning the clues he uncovered Capaldi was trying to second guess the murderer, and I found myself attempting to second guess Capaldi as well This provided a great deal of tension in the book, making it intensely engaging This is the second of the Glyn Capaldi series I ve already got the first on order, and happily the third will be published soon.This review first appeared at

Dead People ↽ DS Glyn Capaldi, half Welsh, half Italian, all maverick, returns in the CWA shortlisted series blowing fresh life into crime fictionDS Glyn Capaldi, exiled to the big empty middle of Wales to atone for past sins in Cardiff, is called in to investigate a human skeleton that has been uncovered during the excavations for a wind farm in a remote valley The body is missing its head and its hands Identity erasure or a ritual killing Glyn s assertion that there must be a local connection is overruled by his superiors, They believe that the body has been transported and dumped, a theory that gains support when additional bodies start to pile up But Capaldi is unconvinced, and sets out to prove that there is someone within the local community capable of achieving the levels of cold and manipulative brutality that have been demonstrated The second DS Glyn Capaldi novel bringscrime into the wilds of Wales The author gets around the low crime rate with historical murder, as he did in the previous novel This was twisty and turny, with such great character dynamics, and a grim sense of humour that is truly compelling.The ending was satisfying, and I didn t see it coming And those last lines I think I d better buy the next one Very well read by Iestyn Arwel he really brought the book to life This is the first book I ve read by this author and it was pretty good The story was well formed and very interesting I do have to say that the author did wrap up the loose ends of the book very quickly, in just a few paragraphs I feel like he could at least have dedicated an entire chapter to the events after the climax of the book Other than that I found the book enjoyable and will readfrom him.
